Join us on Saturday, October 6 at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown! The Glass Auction & Gala features hundreds of glass artworks by artists from all over the world.  100% of the proceeds support the Museum’s education and outreach programs for kids. Your support enables the Museum to serve schools and communities throughout our community with character and civics education programs that teach young people leadership, empathy, personal responsibility and respect for diversity. Thanks to you, all of our programs are subsidized so we can work with kids who are most in need of support, helping them to become tomorrow’s leaders.
